I have Ubuntu 13.04, I installed it as awn applet, I tried, unfortunately it doesn't work.

you all can use a patched file

you have to overwrite your existing /usr/lib/cardapio/ with the file you can download using the link below ...

restart AWN to check

Note for Mint users :

if Cardapio is not working under Mate desktop

then go to /etc/xdg/menus

search for the file

duplicate the file under the name

reload Cardapio applet

..should work
